We stayed only for a couple nights here. Rooms were beautiful and staff was friendly, very helpful and had a great sense of humour! Highly recommend! The view from the tower of the city was truly amazing through the day as well as at night!

My husband and I have just returned from a 5-night stay at the Hotel Torre Guelfa, Florence. We have only got good things to say about this hotel. The hotel is very old, and has retained its history with the decor and style. Its location is unbeatable in Florence. It is a very short walk from the Ponte Vecchio, and...

The location of the hotel is as good as you are going to get, but it is impossible to not be blown away by the absolutely stunning view from the top of the tower. We were never up during the bar service, but sunrise, sunset, and really any time is as good a view as you'll get in Florence. The...

This hotel is in a very convenient location in Florence, on a generally quiet and "off the beaten path" street. The staff manning the front desk were very courteous and helpful. My room was in good condition and the bathroom was clean and modernized. My bed was very comfortable, too. My room faced another street (not the one where the...

We were on a tour and stayed at this hotel. The bathroom was spacious unlike other hotels in Europe. A lot of outside noise at all times (earplugs may help). Elevator was available for room access but for tower access you will need to climb the stairs and it is so worth it.

Dear James, Thank you for your kind review about our hotel! We are delighted you had such a nice stay at Torre Guelfa. All our rooms have sound-proof windows, however you can ask for a room on the inside courtyard for your next stay if you want a really quiet room. We hope to see you again soon in Florence!...

We stayed in the "family" room that consisted of a canopy queen bed and two twin beds. So roomy and clean, the bathroom had TWO sinks and the shower was fantastic. 100 yards from the Ponte Vecchio, and you absolutely MUST have a drink at the rooftop bar! Excellent stay, would highly recommend for families looking for reasonable but nice...

We stayed here 2 nights as part of a Rick Steves tour group. The hotel is beautiful and in a great central location. It was a step back in time with loads of charm and character.

This hotel is in an ancient tower and it has many stairs between floors. There is an elevator, but it's very small and can only hold about two people with luggage. The breakfast area is on the 3rd floor and can quickly become crowded when a tour group is staying at the hotel. The rooms are spacious but not very...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
